Dust driving discouraged

Dirt and dust can negatively impact your driving as we saw with Monday's multi-car pileup just south of Pueblo.

State Patrol says the best thing to do in situations like this is to slow down. If you feel it's too dangerous to continue driving, they say to pull over onto the shoulder and wait until you think it's safe.

"The main thing to do is to prepare for the worst," says Corporal Duane Larson. "If you see dust, visibility could be down to zero, so start slowing down prior to that dust."

He says one thing you absolutely should not do is stop in the middle of the road because that can force cars behind you to slam on their breaks.
